During February half-term holidays Success4All ran a gardening club on Tuesday 21st Februarary in Benwell, at the Carnegie Building and St. James’ Church. At St. James’ Church the children and young people helped to maintain the gardens, for the current residences to enjoy.
They planted daffodils e ready for the sunny Spring season and while digging through the soil the children came across lots of wriggly worms – with the boys in particular becoming quite squeamish!
After the planting, there was an exploration in search of perfect leaves which would be used to make bunting prints. Those who finished first then went on to take part in the tower building challenge, where the task was to see how many stones could be stacked on top of each other to form a tower, the children managed to put together a colossal 21 stones in their tower!
There was then a break for dinner before we started to make bird houses, which were decorated with all sorts of natural objects found in the church garden ranging from leaves to twigs! Success4All hope everybody had a great time at Gardening Club and look forward to seeing the daffodils grow!
